A new resolution introduced by Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) would “properly identify” Antifa as “Domestic Terrorists.”

Introduced Thursday, the resolution defines Antifa as “a movement that intentionally combines violence with the group’s alt-left positions,” and “represents opposition to the democratic ideals of peaceful assembly and free speech for all.”

The measure then lists several examples of Antifa behavior, including:

  • Assaulting conservative journalist Andy Ngo in February and June of 2019, putting him in the hospital.
  • Doxxing ICE employees.
  • Confronting an ICE officer when he went to pick up his daughter from summer camp, as well as plastering “his name and photo” on flyers outside his home labeling him as part of the “Gestapo.”
  • Explicitly rejecting the authority of law enforcement to
  • “protect free speech and stop acts of violence.”

After Ngo was beaten and robbed by members of Portland’s Antifa cell, a GoFundMe established for the journalist raised $195,680 out of its original $50,000 goal after an outpouring of support.

As noted by The Blaze, however, labeling Antifa as “Domestic Terrorists” may also require an entirely new law.

federal law does not have the same clear-cut designation for domestic terrorism organizations that it does for foreign terror organizations (FTOs), explained Andy McCarthy in a 2017 column at National Review.

“There are federal-law processes for designating foreign and international terrorism because defending against foreign threats to national security is primarily a federal responsibility,” McCarthy explained, because foreign operatives have fewer civil rights protections than American citizens and that the best weapon against domestic terror is local law enforcement, not federal. –The Blaze

Portland, meanwhile, is mulling a ban on wearing masks at protests in an effort to crack down on Antifa violence.

  1. Maybe we can rip some of those cowardly masks off of their faces and see just who is committing these crimes against society.

  2. Antifa is backed by the democrats and used as their army of hate/socialism, These are the young brain washed morons of the socialist teaching in the school, they use violence’s against we the people.
    But when we the people use physical force back at Antifa they and the Socialist democrats call foul and cry like the BABIES they are.
    Antifa and the demo party are both TERRORIST org. cut from the same cloth, NAZI SOCIALISM of the 1940’s Geermany. USMC

      • Exactly right! I live in a suburb of Portland Oregon and I WON’T step foot into downtown. It doesn’t matter if there is a protest/demonstration occurring or not, these violent, destructive, and moronic Antifa thugs are out attacking. And our Portland mayor along with Gov. Kate Brown have given these people free reign. Police are told to leave them alone….it’s disgusting!

  3. Antifa, bunch of cowards. I wish they would come to my town and pull that crap. We are not afraid to fight back and give them a little bit of what they can hand out. And we will do it without masks. Bunch of bullies that are cowards.

  4. Cowards covering their faces just like the cowards of ISIS covering their faces and committing heinous acts against the people with complete disregard for the laws and the rights of the citizens.
    Their acts are terrorist and treasonous and they should be out down ASAP with deadly force if required.

  5. Good, now we can arrest the mayors and any other person that gives aid & comfort.
    I’m waiting for the day when they go after someone with a concealed carry permit/ weapon and take out one of these criminals.
    Rip off their masks, let’s see who these MFers are.

  6. The whole new Nationalsozialistiche (National Socialist Workers’ Party, abb. Nazi), aka the Democrat party, is terrorist. Antifa are the new brownshirts for the rise of the fourth reich. They are following the advise of Nazi propagandist Goebbels, “blame the other side for that which you are guilty”.
    And they must be stopped ASAP by whatever means neccesary.

  7. You’ll have to push all your state senators to get this. It will take bi-partisan support. Luckily, there are a bunch of career Demonrats held states, who might throw in their hand to try to keep their seat. Domestic terrorism should have very stiff penalties, as does Treason or Sedition.
    It has always made me curious when I see those masked ‘brats’ on TV. Why is it always the ones who scream for ‘tolerance’ are the ones most intolerant? EVERYTHING action or ‘rule of hate’ they cry about, they embrace themselves. I agree with a couple other posters, it’s the dumbed-down bubble-heads who got their brains squished in public-pedosphere, “school”. I think they are being paid by some very powerful Socialists and Communists from the demonrat world-order (which should also be included in the Domestic Terrorist bill). Anyone who teaches or supports or finances sedition should go to prison; of better yet, EXILED!!
    When someone wears a mask, it’s because they know what they are doing is wrong, and are trying to hide from the guilt; like a bank robber. They are too weak to stand up for what they believe. If you believe it, SHOW YOUR FACE!!!
    Why would anyone want to volunteer to give up American freedoms for the controls of Socialism or the tyranny of Communism, is a wonder that is only explained by “Brain-washing”.

  8. One thing is for sure, if it doesn’t pass into law, EVERYONE who voted against it WILL be known to the whole of America!
